Officiating

Welcome to Mission Minor Hockey Association’s Officiating page,
This is the place for those interested to learn more about how to become a new official or returning officials wanting to continue.

Mission Minor Hockey strives to heavily focus on the development of younger, brand new officials, along with the more experienced referees seeking additional knowledge and skills to become confident, courageous and successful officials.
We offer a greatly experienced development team of supervisors/shadows that will be working very closely with officials, working on achieving their personal goals.

Becoming an Official

Are you interested in becoming a referee?
MMHA and Hockey Canada are always in need of new officials that are fully committed and wishing for a new, fun role in the game of hockey.

The game is continually growing, and each year we need to bring in new officials all across Canada to keep pace with the everlasting demand and ensure hockey stays safe and fair for everyone.
Refereeing can be an extremely rewarding experience, and we encourage anyone who is interested to sign up for an HCOP clinic.

If you or your child is 12-years old or older they are eligible to become a referee!
New officials must register for Hockey University – Officiating Online Modules. You’re required to fully complete this course, as it is a prerequisite to joining an HCOP clinic and becoming a referee.

If you’re registered as a player for MMHA, we will fully cover the cost of certification and Hockey University.
Please visit this link to learn more:​ ​http://www.bchockey.net/Officiating/GettingStarted.aspx

If you have any questions or concerns regarding signing up for an HCOP clinic or completing Hockey University, please contact our Referee in Chief, Owen Harvey. You can reach him by email at ​owenharvey02@gmail.com

Returning Officials

If you’re a returning official and wanting to continue your progress, you must attend a re-certification HCOP clinic.
BC Hockey conducts these Super Clinics by zone; you’ll be able to find a clinic nearby near the beginning of each hockey season.
You’ll be able to find more, and register for a clinic at​ ​www.bchockey.net/clinics

If you’re 18-years old or older, a Criminal Record Check MUST be completed​.
You’re able to find this over on BC Hockey’s website here:​ ​Criminal Record Check Information
